Sometimes we see exhibitions that draw attention to unknown legacies. Interwoven Connections: The Stoddard Templeton Design Studio and Design Library, 1843-2005 is one of them. We had a closer look…
What happens when manufacture and design go hand in hand? What is the legacy and historical relevance of this kind of fusion? The current exhibition Interwoven [...]


Throwing back to our launch-screening a couple of weeks back, one question: did Marina make You cry?
If you didn’t, it’s my obligation to bad taste that I recommend you take some reformatory lessons from the Marina Abravomic Made Me Cry tumblr.  The grandiloquence of empathy will persuade a few milligrams of salt water from the [...]


As we are a little out of breath on the final round before the great break (yes!), here is our fourth and final gesture of kindness for 2013, at least over at mono.konsum, which comes in three parts – the kindness, that is: 1) our lovely edition with Taryn Simon, 2) free shipping, 3) worldwide.

Tha Lodown

Having just released issue #89 (featuring greats like The Acid, Eddie Otchere, Allen Ying and tons more), Berlin’s Lodown Magazine also launched its new website last week: Call it a day, listen to some free Fly Lo, check the Pulse and read some fresh in-depth interviews with Darkside and others online!

‘Poor Duncan just wants to color. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: His crayons have had enough! They quit! Beige Crayon is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown Crayon. Black wants to be used for more than just outlining. Blue needs a break from coloring all [...]


As kindness continues, we are getting a sensation of fuzzy warmth all over inside, despite the nasty weather outside, and hey, if that alone isn’t worth it… In our third installment of Christmas kindness, lo and behold, all shipping on those coveted Mirandy July posters is on us, and us alone. Worldwide and for one [...]


Let there be light: it is the medium that seems of the moment.  Far before this moment, Anthony McCall began his work in the affiliated with the theory-favoring Formalists–Bruce Naumann, Wolf Vostell, and Nam Jun Paik, etc–but his work differs in its distinct transcendentalism more in line with James Turrell.

All our very best and enjoy,
